Suggestion: Improving Steemit's 'Promote Post' function.

Repository

Components

Promoted posts and the Steemit feed.

Proposal Description

I think the promoted post function of Steemit should be given more value and exposure. Currently, it's limited to it's own tab labeled "Promoted". Personally, I've only viewed this tab once and I'm sure most other people don't even take the time to check it out. It's essentially wasting money to be listed on a page no one visits.

What I would like to see is the promoted posts hidden in between posts on the feed. The promoted posts could be randomly displayed for a flat-rate, or they could be displayed in the order of who paid more. Ads like this can be seen on most social media sites as it makes people more likely to click on it.

Like I previously stated, most social networks are doing this now and I believe Steemit should do the same. This eliminates the need and should reduce the use of bidbots which a lot of Steemians are objected to. I personally like the bid bots. but they do have their flaws.

If possible, an option should be given to allow the advertisers to choose which categories they'd like their post/ad displayed on. This allows for a bit of strategic targeting which makes advertising worth it.

Benefits

I listed the benefits above within the proposal description.

I'm not sure what happens with the coins that are spent on the Promote Post feature, but if they go to the Steem team then this is another benefit of changing the system.

Hi @treepi, thank you for your contribution.

This is indeed a great idea.
Unfortunatelly similar suggestions were submitted before, for example:

And, as you may know similar/duplicated ideas will not be considered for reward because the developers are aware of the idea. Also it is a way to prevent abuse since bad users could submit old contributions.

Next time, you can use this tool utopiandb.herokuapp.com created by @crokkon
Here I searched for a contribution in the Suggestions category with the keyword promoted.
Remember to check the Issues tracker on GitHub as well.

On the other hand, as @ckole said, this is kind of an Organizational issue and Suggestions relating to product or organizational processes will not be considered for reward because Suggestions detail potentially beneficial significant technical features / enhancements to an Open Source project. and not ideas related to business strategies.

The money is distributed to all stakeholders, if I am not wrong. Source

I will be happy to see a new contribution from you. :)
